55-200 Vr

  1. Any thoughts on this lens? I'm looking for a good walk-around lens and at $250 this one seems to be a steal. Anyone have any feedback - positive or negative?

  2. Yeah, I've got that issue at home. While I respect Pop Photo I've also found that real world experience isn't always the same as their testing. Thanks, though.

    I bought this lens 2 weeks ago -- it is surprisingly sharp, even at 200. Just used it at a baptism, and while I regretted having something so long the pictures came out great.
    It does seem to be a little more "noisy" in it's AF-S mechanism than other AF-S type lenses, but that is getting reeally nitpicky.
